New Gears & Exhaust Headers!

I picked up these Ram Horn headers from Dave G. in my car club for free. These should clean up nicely with a little sand blasting and ceramic paint.
I posted a wanted ad on Craigslist looking for a set of gears for the 58"wide rearend my neighbor Bill gave me. I had 3 responses..... one guy wanted $250, another guy wanted $150, and the 3rd guy had (2) sets of gears and told me I could HAVE them for FREE! So, Saturday morning Pam & I headed out and picked up the 2 sets of gears.
This set has 3.08 gears in it.
This set has 3.36 gears in it out of a 59 Corvette.
I ground off the existing mounting brackets on the rearend and wire brushed the entire thing using my grinder. I then primed it with KBS paint.
